1 Month Menu Plan for Newlyweds
Even if you are a beginner in the kitchen, the newlywed phase usually brings a sense of experimentation when it comes to making dinner for your spouse. You finally have your own space where you can use all of your cool new appliances from your registry, not to mention wanting to treat your spouse to a beautiful sit-down dinner, too. We were there, we get it.
We also understand that the recipes you make need to be easy, fun, relatively on the cheaper side (you won’t find lamb chops on this list), with a mix of flavors each week.
The menu plan below for the month of August (or any month) reflects all of that.
And if making dinner wasn’t an activity in itself, see all of these ideas for having the perfect date night indoors.
